Statement from Oti Mabuse in support of WACL’s Centenary activities:
“I am who I am because of the women who surround me. They motivated me and continually inspire me.
WACL’s work has never been more important. To be a part of something where women come together to uplift, collaborate and share experiences with one another is everything I’ve ever hoped for. I’m so excited for 2023 and all the incredible anniversary celebrations to come for the year ahead”.
